Cooking Fires are Preventable

Most fires we respond to are caused by smart people making dumb decisions. Like leaving the kitchen while heating something on the stove.
Careless cooking is the number one cause of fires in Springfield. And they’re completely preventable. Don’t be a dummy!
Limit distractions like phones while cooking and always have a lid nearby to smother small stovetop fires.
Keep the stovetop clear of things that can catch fire and remember, when in doubt, get out.
